Principal's Message

Hello Parents & Students,
I am honored to be stepping into the position of Principal of Alamogordo High School. As a Graduate of Alamogordo High School and parent of 3 AHS graduates, I take a lot of pride in the success of our students.  

Alamogordo High School will continue to offer opportunities to prepare students for  academic and career success. To support our academics, we hope to connect our students to extracurricular activities from sports, to clubs, STEM as well as many more hands-on elective classes that AHS has to offer.  Attendance is key to student success and I hope to work together to keep our students present in school.  Our teachers, administrators, and staff are dedicated to promoting equal educational opportunities and high levels of learning for all students in a safe and supportive environment. 

Safety, positive relationships, and academic excellence are our top priorities. We want all of our students to achieve their goals, and this can happen only in an environment where everyone feels safe, valued, and respected.  

Please take time to review the student handbook as it includes information to help students adhere to school and district rules, procedures, and expectations and help us all create a safe, healthy, and supportive atmosphere in a fair, consistent and nondiscriminatory manner. 

I know that by working together we continue to make Alamogordo High School the best in New Mexico!
